View Full Version : Soil Test Results "Advice on PIC Please"

What do you guys think? It's Fescue.

I just put calcitic lime on before I got the results back. Because it had always needed it in the past. A mistake I know. So now the PH will go even higher. I'm overseeding it in mid september. Should I take any corrective action now?

I believe recommendations are on the lower right side corner if this is from clc labs. In the midwest, the ph is not far off as is...

Regarding "Base saturation percentages" the Calcium (lime) is a little high--this depresses potash (K) and Magnesium ratios. You should not add phosphorus.

No need to take corrective action in my opinion. Something like John Deere 24-0-11 would work fine, if you have adequate moisture. If you want to improve it to near perfection--then overseed with a top quality seed. The best seed will be disease resistant and be genetically dark green--and have more chlorophyll in each leaf. Or ...switch to stadium-quality sod.
